As a global leader in marine electrical systems and components, Mastervolt is once again a proud and dedicated race supplier of the legendary Volvo Ocean Race. Here, at the world’s longest sporting event, we fulfill our ambitious mission: the power to be independent. This independency from the grid is what we offer the teams during their 45.000 nautical miles around the world. All participating boats will be powered by the same innovative power system, centered around our famous Mastervolt Lithium Ion batteries and CZone digital switching. We wish all crews a safe journey across four oceans,
Gloria Borrego of the M-Team reports from the boat yard in Itajaí, the location where the boats finished after leg 7 in the Volvo Ocean Race. She talks to Liz Wardley, boat captain of Team Turn the Tide on Plastic about the Lithium Ion batteries onboard. Liz really likes the reliability. “You can go to sleep with a really peace of mind that you won’t have problems with your batteries.”
Also in this episode: a special tribute to John Fisher, who was lost at sea.
During the full race Mastervolt’s M-Team, a dedicated team of technical specialists, will be available for the crews. The M-Team will man the technical support hotline and at each and every stopover a Mastervolt engineer is available to monitor the systems on board of every vessel and help out when problems arise.
